    Run To State Line

    I have a question about usage of the verb "run" here:


    The speed limit only runs to the state line.

    I looked up some dictionaries, but I could not find a definition for "run" that fits this usage. Could the example be wrong or be some kind of regionalism?

    Re: Run To State Line

    It means "extends to the state line".
